Feels like a Monday

Yup, it's totally a Monday. As I've mentioned a few thousand times before, I'm not the biggest fan of my Monday/Tuesday school. On top of all of that, I'm pretty exhausted.

My side job is really getting in the way of real life. Instead of lounging around all day Sunday, I spent 7 hours working the register. I need to keep my mind on the cash.

Anyways, back to my real job. I spend about 1/3 of my time doing individual and/or group counseling, 1/3 of my time in parent meetings, and about 1/3 of my time testing kids and writing up psychological evaluations. Well, you can't write psychological reports the old fashioned way anymore. You know, with Microsoft word and a template. Nope, instead we have to use a web based software that is controlled and monitored by big brother (in county) and the state.

Basically, this web based software is designed to make life easier, but really just makes it suck. Today, while adding to a background history, I lost everything. Normally, I'm neurotic about pressing save on the top of the screen every ten minutes (didn't I get mad at boyfriend for something eerily similar?) to ensure that I save my work-- seeing as though I've seen way to many coworkers lose everything. I could have sworn I saved it, but something happened to my computer, and poof! It was gone.

Several people were in my office doing work so all I could do was yell "Monday!" Not, "I hate you, if I had a window I'd throw you out of it," like I would have preferred.


In other news, boyfriend and I are most likely moving in together when my lease is up in August. He basically lives here now, and it will save both of us (well mostly me) a ton of money. Ideally, I'd rather be engaged before I live with someone, but I'm still excited and I think it will definitely work out. I haven't gotten sick of him yet and he's here 98% of the time.

I'm very excited--except when he threatens to buy that velvet red and yellow redskins couch--and he generally threatens this once a day.

I swear, if he doesn't shut it, I'm going to pierce his ear when he's sleeping and slip this in..

Holy crap, it's the truth about all of them!

If he gets the couch, I think piercing his ear with that should be the least you should do. Hmm...maybe get him drunk and make him get a Steelers tattoo???
Eric and I moved in together before we got engaged, but he proposed not too long after that. Maybe your boyfriend will see how much he just can't live without you and he'll pop the question!!!

Good point a.d.

Drastic times call for drastic measures.

yes, hopefully he doesn't realize that living with me is awful (i'm neurotic).
